Postdoctoral fellow. CSIRO Agriculture and Food, Canberra
Madeline is plant molecular physiologist interested in understanding the way plants respond to their environment to optimise growth and how we can best use science for a more sustainable, food-secure world. During her PhD at the University of Cambridge, she investigated the way algae photosynthesis more efficiently, contributing to an international collaboration to re-engineer crop photosynthesis to improve yields. Currently a postdoctoral fellow at CSIRO, she is working on turning starch crops into oil crops to meet the growing demand for plant oil. She is also passionate about gender equity and diversity in STEM.
